Brian Croxall, a post-doctoral fellow in our Digital Scholarship Commons, shares his experience of teaching an "Introduction to Digital Humanities" course to English students.
His article, "An Experiment in Progress: the library, the Digital Scholarship Commons, and new tools for research and teaching," is featured in The Academic Exchange: A Forum for Emory Faculty Work, Life, and Thought.
In the article, Croxall concludes, "Ultimately, the role that technology and libraries will play in the future of humanities research—and the future of the liberal arts—is a lot like my class’s final exam: an experiment in progress. We’re not yet entirely sure what we’ll learn as we implement new tools in traditional disciplines, but we do know that the collaborative investigation will leave us all the richer for having made the attempt."
